Currently, in addition to the standard contract of employment for a fixed term, the foreign owner can offer the seafarer and the other type of contract. There is such a thing as a permanent (permanent contract), ie permanent contract. This is when the owner enters into a contract with a sailor for a long time, but not for 4-6 months, as in the standard version. Plus, such a contract – a sailor guaranteed a job for at least a year, with the prospect of prolongation. Stability and financial side is more attractive – the salary is equal installments throughout the year, whether on board or a sailor on leave.
Minus – for the year may change the situation and salary at the beginning of the year to become not relevant to the end or the work turned up a more promising and financially attractive. And no getting around it – the obligations under the contract must be kept. The benefit to the shipowner is obvious – he needs a good specialist for a long time. A modern sailor is another great opportunity employment – is working directly with the shipowner, passing all sorts of crewing agencies and offices. Through a network can be find a huge number of Web sites of shipping companies around the world. Many shipowners on their Web sites publish vacancies for seafarers.
Price of the issue – the applicant to make sensible pre-CV or cv (cirriculum vitae) and send it directly to the email address of the shipping company. Naturally, the applicant must be with the experience and a good level of spoken English and be confident expert in your field. and the answer is not long to wait. Now, many seafarers are working on this principle, well, or try to start working. Pros – its independence from the whims of crewing, salaries are higher and can negotiate directly with Owners, as well as contractual terms. Cons – a little red tape with the design of exit documents. But all solved. There will always be crewing, which for a small financial gratitude draws the crew list and warranty letter for exit.
